Overview

The double-cutaway G5622T-CB Electromatic Center-Block Electric Guitar features "That Great Gretsch Sound" with the "center-block advantage." The interior solid spruce center block running the length of the guitar's 1-¾"-deep thinline-style body makes for a lively "high gain-friendly" tone and delivers greater control over the kind of feedback players want. The three new dual-coil Super HiLo'Tron pickups are voiced to produce a clean, high-end sparkle with robust low-end, low-noise performance, along with versatile pickup switching.

Other premium features include five-ply maple body construction with a bound arched top and back, bound "cat's eye" sound holes and a bound maple neck. The G5622T-CB also has a 12.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets and Neo-Classic "thumbnail" inlays, three-way neck/bridge pickup switching with two-way auxiliary switching (middle pickup on/off), single-ply black pickguard with Gretsch logo, five "G-arrow" control knobs (volume for each pickup, master tone for bridge and middle pickups, master volume), anchored Adjusto-matic bridge and flat-handle Bigsby-licensed B70 vibrato, Grover tuners and knurled strap retainer knobs. Case sold separately.

Very nice semi-hollow body electric. It's a bit unique for a Gretsch, or any other semi-hollows on the market really. I was looking for something a bit different from the standard fare (as much as I love my LP, strat, and tele). This thing is a conversation piece with all my friends - it's got a very attention-grabbing look to it without being gaudy and it's the first guitar people notice in my collection. I got the black finish and it looks really sharp with the silver hardware.

I was really impressed with the neck - the frets were perfect and the rosewood fingerboard is a beautiful dark color. Lots of nice little touches that I didn't appreciate in the pictures - pearloid Gretsch logo/inlays, binding around the sound holes, etc.

I've never had a guitar with a Bigsby before. I expected to just tuck it away and use it as ornamentation, but it's more useful than I anticipated. It stays in tune better than I expected, but then again I really only use it for subtle pitch changes. The factory setup was OK; the action was a bit high and the high three strings were intonated sharp. Nothing a quick setup and some patience can't fix. Took about a half-hour to get the action/intonation just the way I like it. This came with a higher string gauge (11-49) than I'm used to playing, but it's easier to bend notes than I expected, maybe because of the short scale of the neck.

One of the features of the guitar that caught my eye was the electronics. I won't attempt to describe all the possible combinations involved with the three pickups, but there really are endless possibilities with blending the pickups. The variety of tones available is really quite impressive. The neck and bridge pickups respond about how you'd expect tonally and produce some beautiful tones. The middle pickup is the wild card on this guitar. I've heard other people describe it as being strat-like; I would definitely agree with that. It's very different from the bridge/neck pickups.

It's actually pretty hard to go wrong with this thing as far as getting nice clean tone out of the pickups. I personally like using this through the clean channel on my Mesa 5:25. This combination produces some incredible clean, rich tone with some jangle to it. That being said, there are a lot of controls on this guitar compared to the more traditional electric models and they take a bit of tinkering to get used to (not a bad thing if you like experimenting). I believe the pickups are dual-coils; they're very quiet as far as hum. They are thicker/richer than strat-style pickups but not as creamy/thick as a LP-style humbucker; they demonstrate excellent articulation from each string.

Overall this just a great guitar. Unique, well-thought out design and feature set; solid construction/quality control; wide range of tones, almost all of them very beautiful. In my opinion the price is definitely fair given the features and quality. I don't think it's too fair to knock the rating down just because it needed a better setup out of the factory, most new guitars do in my experience. I'm really impressed overall. I waited two weeks after I received it before I took the stickers off the pickguard just to make sure I wanted to keep it, but I've taken them off because I've deemed this model to be a keeper. I'd recommend checking it out.

I purchased this as a "Condition 1 Mint Condition" return. When it arrived upon a quick inspection - it was obvious that the fretboard was coming off the neck. Both sides of the neck by the nut were cracked, paint missing, could clearly see the bottom of the fretboard and a space between it and the neck. Returning it tomorrow. Whoever listed this as mint did not inspect this guitar. I don't mind scuffs, gentle wear from normal playing - but the fretboard coming off the neck??? And of course they're now out of the Georgia Green so can't even get a replacement. Bad way to do business. My time is important too folks.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5622T Electromatic Center Block Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

Had to have the toggle switches rewired, not turning on the proper pickups. Volume pots for bridge and mid pickup are either on or off...no gradual volume. Tone pot changes not noticeable at all. I've had two other Electromatics and had similar issues. A friend just bought this same guitar and having same issues.

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5622T Electromatic Center Block Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

    I play small venues and this one guitar takes me from beatles to zepplin to jazz and blues . I usually have my new guitars set up , but this played perfect from the minute i pulled off the wall. It took less than hour to know this was leaving with me! Iv'e bought the pro jet as well and had the same good luck. Gretsch makes a solid instrument,for the price and would recomend this model to everyone who plays multiple styles.

            Fantastic guitar. Kudo's to Guitar Center...guitar and case arrived three days after placing the order as advertised.

            Unpacked the G5622T, tuned it up (it wasn't far out of tune out of the box), and plugged it in. Everything was functional and the action is great.. Great sound... the three pickups give it a lot of sound options even with my old Crate amp.

            Can't say enough about the Rosa Red color...the pictures don't do it justice.

            Couldn't be happier with the purchase.

                Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5622T Electromatic Center Block Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

                I really enjoy playing this guitar, it has a very wide range of tone and character. I am a hobbyist when it comes to guitars and I have a little collection going. Saw this guitar across the guitar area when i walked into GC (Oxnard) and knew I had to try it out. Spent a hour or so playing around with it and knew it had to come home with me. That was about a year ago and now it is my go to guitar. I love the variety of sounds i can get with it and the build is pretty solid. I am sure there are better electronic set ups on more expensive models, but this one is great for me - might change out the switches and phono plug eventually (if they wear out). The finish is beautiful and it surprised me that this was made overseas. I prefer American made goods, however I can't afford the higher end Gretsch beauties at this time. This model has even survived nicely with my toddler kids "helping" me play. The main thing always comes down to the sound, and this guitar makes me extremely happy. I would buy another in a heart beat.
                I was on the lookout for a nice guitar and I am glad I found this one, it's a keeper!

                          I bought this guitar after considering a usa fender tele or a lower end les paul. I love the way it sounds plugged in but the way it sounds unpluged is pretty incredible really. The components all seem pretty nice but the tone pots dont really do much and the plug was loose when I got it, that was why the 4 stars. I will replace the tone pots and I leave the pickup volume pots maxed anyway so they dont matter much. The master volume knob is a great thing when I playing in my apartment, it lets me turn it down when the neighbors bang on the walls :)
